Fridge looks great and works good. My wife and I are mostly pleased with it but we found these little caveats with it. Be careful when adjusting foot levelers, as manual states to use a 3/8" wrench to adjust, when it really requires a 1/4" wrench. If you use a 3/8" wrench on the heads that are 3/8" you will strip these bolts which are structural bolts and not levelers. Also the water dispenser does not dispense cold water. The 100 ft. of coiled tubing which is used as a reservoir only holds about 6-8 oz. of water. After the first cup of water at maybe 60 deg F. the next cups are at the same temp as your kitchen faucet at about 65 deg F. Good cold water should be in the 40 deg F range. The inside drawers and shelves do not seem to be very heavy duty and operate flimsy. My previous kitchen Aid fridge (about 16 years old) was very well built inside. Once in a while the ice cube dispenser gets clogged up and you have to go inside the freezer, remove the ice box container and clear out the shaft leading to the outside. Lastly the serial number on the fridge did not match the serial number on the paper work I received with the fridge.

Refrigerator arrived and installer said unit is now running properly only to discover a few days later that it was not cooling when the retailer's serviceman found that the compressor had not been wired at all at the factory. We lost about $ 200 of food but Kitchenaid would only reimburse us $100 after several calls and haggling with customer service. Overall very disappointing on both quality control and poor customer service. quality

Kitchen Aid Side by Side 22 cu ft Fridge
By Southen Yankee

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator:
I started with a Frigidaire 26 cu ft. At $900 the price was right at it was a good looking stainless steel box. But we had significant issues with it and after using it for 4 weeks ended up exchanging it for this Kitchen Aid. The Kitchen Aid was $600+ more expensive BUT trust me it's worth every bit of it. Ice maker much quieter when making ice. The box is significantly quieter when running. (The noise difference is night and day.) The Kitchen Aid is much better made and better quality. Features are more upscale (lighting, drawers, etc. ) but it cost more. You get what you pay for.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the bright lights
I got another brand and did not like it. I'm 69 and could not see very well in the other appliance plus it was too big for my condo. I had them pick it up and they researched online and ordered this one and it's perfect for my kitchen.i love the design and the bright lights..plus it looks great in my condo,the perfect size.

Maximum area for smaller unit

Ice dispenser keeps freezing up & jams (4 times since we got the unit). It's a big & messy job to free it up requiring hot water poured through the unit.

Happy with the new refrigerator. It makes a few noises now and then but all in all, I'm quite happy with it.

When dispensing ice, unless you are leave glass under dispenser after pushing, you will have ice on the floor. Other problem is I have found that cheese gets moldy very quickly in the deli keeper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
So far, so good
from Waterford, WI, United States
We've had this fridge now close to 2months, it's been great. Really like the efficient use of space. My last fridge was 36" wide, but I feel like this has nearly the same amount of storage. Hooked up the icemaker to an RO system and it's perfect.
Fit and Finish very Nice

I have used this refrigerator for about a month now and I am well pleased with it. Its appearance/finish is great. Had a missing shelf, 1 fridge, 1 freeezer, and the deli drawer, but KitchenAid has promptly sent us the missing parts. Well pleased with their customer support.

This refrigerator is loaded with great features, such as drip-free shelves, easy to understand and operate controls, and LED lighting; and it was the perfect size to fit in our cabinetry. Love the in-door water and ice feature.
